Thanks for your prompt response, Pascal.

No, unless you want to directly use the live555 tools themselves. It is also 
optional for mplayer and ffmpeg and I'd like to be able to build them with 
live555 support. The current devel package conflicts with the full build 
package currently installed (2010.something) and yast wants to uninstall it to 
install the current devel package.

If that is what is supposed to happen then fair enough. It sems different to 
the usual way of having the main application/library packages and then a -
devel package with the header files required for compiling other apps against 
it (assuming shared libs are built). 

Maybe only this devel package is needed for compiling mplayer and ffmpeg with 
live555 support?
